  • when a white cop exaggerates with brutality towards GF he is referred to as a cold blooded murderer, but when a black man takes the lives of five people (including two small children) for the mainstream media, it is "just" a killing... smh

  • For CNN ... only black lives matter (as long as the victims aren't murdered by another black or a black gang, as was 7 year old Jaslyn Adams, and dozens of other little black children, year after year) ... white lives obviously don't matter to CNN ... thank you NBC for doing the reporting.

  • The father blames football for this tragedy. "His mental health degraded fast and terribly bad,.’ “There was unusual behavior. I’m not going to get into all that (symptoms). We definitely did notice signs of mental illness that was extremely concerning, that was not like we had ever seen. … "He wasn't a monster. He was struggling with his mental health" he said.... And nobody thought after these statements to mention his behavior to anyone? Now 5 innocent people are dead and one is fighting for their life, Plus the shooter whose life may have been saved if somebody had just spoken up. I don't know how a person lives with that knowledge.

  • My heart goes out to the families. However, what trips me out is how all white people would say imagine how the police felt when the police saw all them bodies etc etc.. However, they want say one word about all the black people killed in the South in the 1930-1960. What do think there families were saying?

Now God says we are all Hypocrites but because of the " Big Denial" by the NFL , CTE , has now affected the Civilian NFL community. Admission of CTE, compensation for it, then talks about medical care, signatures from players waving future claims then relaxation of hitting rules in football except for Kids and College too protect them. When you lie it makes Thugs WORSE NOT BETTER

That is what you find JOY😀 in. The fact that you would even mention that hints at the natural dislike. Hatred is in the heart , lives in the mind, and can't help but expose itself naturally off a nasty tongue through hateful lips.

And the funny thing is, the blacks that support them sit and currently watch the borders overrun by latinos. The same latinos that will supplant the blacks as the major minority in this country. And the same latinos that will keep blacks in poverty and add more of them to that group as they compete for jobs in that job pool

Unfortunately, it’s people of color, especially blacks, that get caught up in this. But it’s their own fault as they continually allow themselves to be used as pawns by the politicians they repeatedly vote for and the MSM which is basically a mouthpiece for those liberal politicians. That all being said, the MSM war waging against the white male is conducted by, yep, you guessed it, other white males. It always is
